After in the early 1500s, the Portuguese constructed a fort in Negombo and took over the trade of cinnamon to the West and in the 1600s the king of Kandy turned to the Dutch for help. The Dutch captured Negombo from the Portuguese in 1646. The legacy of the Dutch colonial era can be seen in the Dutch Fort, constructed in 1672, a number of other buildings and the extensive canal system that runs 120 km from Colombo in the South, through Negombo to Puttalam in the north. The British then took it from them in 1796 without a struggle.
